Majjige, is one of the most soothing, cool drink that can be made at home. I use different flavours everyday and hence never can have enough of it. Majjige is also commonly known as Buttermilk in India.
What is Buttermilk?
1/2 ltr – Curds
Salt to taste
10 ice cubes
Leave the curds in the refrigerator overnight.
Take curds and half the amount of ice in a blender jar and run on low speed for 5 mins continuously.
You will notice the butter seperated.
Using a spoon scoop the butter into a container. Add the butter every day to the same container till you have enough to make ghee.
Now to the curd add ice cubes and churn for another 5 minutes. Scoop the frothy layer on top and discard.
I follow this method to remove as much fat as possible.
Now add salt and any flavouring ingredient in the above list or combination of those.
Churn ones more. Add 1 ltr of water to this to dilute the mixture.
Store it in bottles and refrigerate.
I use lemon juice almost everytime with any flavour. A tbsp of lemon juice lifts up the tartness of the chaas more.
Lemon juice + coriander
Lemon juice + Curry leaves
Lemon juice + Roaste cumin
